It was amazing! I loved all my classes and had an exceptionally good time playing sports! The school does a very good job hiring the right staff, and I learned very well.

I mean, its not the best high school, but its fairly good. We typically have good standardized test scores and the like. Our sports are ok. The main sports like baseball and football are lack luster, but our soccer, cross country and track/field teams are great. I wouldnt bother eating the school food.
I graduated from Baraboo High School in June of 2018. I attended all 12 years of schooling in the Baraboo School District. The High School helped me take AP courses to help prepare for college, and also worked with UW-Baraboo/Sauk County to allow BHS students take college courses during high school. Not all teachers at Baraboo were helpful to guide us on the right track to college, which has now given me struggles and put me behind since I am now in college. I think the high school needs to offer more AP testing and learn how to help students prepare for college better.
